WRITERMOM column [On the Home Front]

Published from 1999-2005 in the West linn Tidings

From 1999 to 2005 I penned a column for the West Linn Tidings called WriterMom [for a time it was titled On the Home Front]- I had asked my local paper to pen this family column after realizing there was so much negative news in the little local weekly paper and  yet we lived in such a family oriented community.

My editor gave me a shot at writing my On the Home Front column in 1999, and after only a couple of weeks the publisher Bob Bigelow asked if they were paying me — they were not — He wanted to start paying me! So, my dream of becoming a paid columnist started with this family column. I am working on collecting these columns into a book.
